I installed Zepio a little over a month ago. It worked great, synced (took a few days), and I moved a non-trivial amount of funds into a z-address in the Zepio wallet. I did save an offline backup of the wallet.dat file. Everything was working great.
Then I didn’t use Zepio again for a little over a month. When I fired it back up, I started getting " Zepio could not find a daemon running" errors.
Note: I’m using version 0.9.0 on Mac OS.
I tried the following things and none of them solved the problem:
- Restarting Zepio.
- Uninstalling an reinstalling Zepio and letting it sync again (took days).
- Installing ZecWallet Full Node (got a similar error: “Failed to start zcashd. Giving up!
Please file an issue with Zecwallet”)
Sometimes I can see zcashd running in the background, using ~100% CPU (according to Activity Monitor).
I see there is an open issue about this on GitHub (https://github.com/ZcashFoundation/zepio/issues/167) but it has been open for a half a year, so I don’t think it will be addressed there.
If anyone can help me get access to my funds I would greatly appreciate it. The amount of money I had in Zepio is enough that I’m willing to buy a non-mac laptop to get access to my funds if that is what’s needed here.
Thanks in advance.
